The spotlight has already shifted onto Google’s next big thing just days after the launch of its Pixel 8 series, according to reliable tipster Ross Young. It was recently revealed that the Google Pixel 9 series will sport larger displays than their predecessors, according to Young’s tweet.
The Pixel 8 Pro features a 6.7-inch screen, while the newly released Pixel 8 features a 6.2-inch screen. According to Young’s tweet, Google is considering enlarging the display area for the Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, and even the next Pixel Fold. It comes from Young’s latest “Advanced Smartphone Report,” a document that has proven accurate in predicting smartphone trends in the past.
What is the reason for Google’s preference for bigger displays? The growing demand for larger screens that facilitate better multimedia experiences may be one answer. When it comes to streaming videos, playing games, or multitasking, a bigger screen generally makes life easier. It seems logical for Google to follow the lead of its competitors with larger displays as well.
However, this move raises questions about ergonomics and user-friendliness. What is the impact on one-handed usability if the display is larger? How long does the battery last? It remains to be seen how Google will address the problem of bigger screens consuming more power.
